Just days after an American contractor was kidnapped in Afghanistan, a Navy SEAL team conducted raids in order to find him. The commandos detained members who were believed to be a part of the Taliban-linked Haqqani network, and they worked to track the contractor’s cellphone. Much of the circumstance regarding the abduction is still unknown, and very little information has been released by the U.S. government. Washington has recently asked Kabul to release Taliban prisoners as outlined in the peace treaty and in order to curb the coronavirus. Mark R. Frerichs’ brother has commented that despite the talks and negotiations of prisoner swaps and releases, his captured brother has not been a part of the deal.
